I know, shocking title but hear me out!

I am shooting promos for a local gym and I'm shooting in 4k mode and exporting to 1920x1080 however the screens they want to put the videos on are vertical stand displays. Imagine a 16x9 TV flipped sideways.

My question is how do I take the footage I have and reform it to fit in vertical mode without distorting the footage too much? What are my options? And I cant' reshoot the footage with the camera sideways....

If I exported in the aspect ratio of a vertical video wouldn't that compress the footage I have in 16x9, squash it together and make it look really weird?

Yeah no other option if that's the case. It's either pan and scan, cropped, black bar/matte, or ugly resize.
Since the source is 4K, can't you play with resize ? Obviously you sacificing the left/right frame (pan&scan).

Yeah, it's too bad you didn't think ahead. Don't forget that recent AE versions have the Detail Preserving Upscale, which seems to work pretty well.

...Too bad I didn't think ahead. LOL! I wasn't told about it until after I had done the filming. Why don't you keep your judgments to yourself.

You hadn't mentioned that you were told this after the fact.

That said, the best way to do this would be to reshoot with the camera oriented 90 degrees off-axis, so the framing is correct. If you can make that case to your client, by all means do.

If they're not receptive, hopefully they get a nice editing bill.
